Urban Trees - Stars!

The Port's Public Art Program conceived this temporary exhibit to punctuate and activate the postcard views of San Diego Bay and invite people to stroll along and enjoy the pedestrian promenade. Artists were invited to apply their creative energies to the design of artistic trees to add color, form, interest and fun to the waterfront.

 The 30 artworks were commissioned for the Urban Trees 6 exhibit, which extends for a half mile along Harbor Drive from the Cruise Ship Terminal to Hawthorn Street. Along the way, visitors can enjoy other attractions including the USS Midway, the Maritime Museum of San Diego, Flagship Cruises & Events, Hornblower Cruises & Events and outstanding waterfront dining.

Site of the First Padres Ballpark

Lane Field encompasses approximately 5.7 acres of land located on the north side of Broadway, between North Harbor Drive and Pacific Highway, adjacent to the core of San Diego’s downtown. From the 1930s through the 1950s, Lane Field served as a baseball stadium for the teams of the Pacific Coast League. It was the home of the Padres from 1936 to 1957. Since the 1960s, the site has been primarily used for parking.

The Port and Lane Field San Diego Developers, LLC are have entered into options to lease, activating the bayfront with two hotels, visitor-serving retail, underground public parking, and nearly two acres of public space. The development would also extend upland views through "C" Street to San diego Bay throught an east-west roadway. The roadway separates the site into Lane Field North and Lane Field South and serves as a common vehicular entrance to both sites terminating at a large public plaza adjacent to North Harbor Drive.

A Different View of Downtown

You'll see this view if you cross the bridge from the convention center to the ballpark.  And, as we have generally pretty fantastic weather, you're likely to have the same beautiful skies!
